Beautiful Apartment in Red Light Old Quarter
The apartment shares the top two floors of this lovely canal side house overlooking the famous Oude Zijds Achterburgwal canal in de Wallen, the heart of Amsterdam’s old quarter and Red Light Light District. Complete with original features, the first floor comprises of a large living room at the back of the house with small veranda, which is super quiet even on a summer’s Saturday night. The front kitchen and dining room overlooks the canal and street from good distance where the view is forever interesting. The top attic floor has two cosy quiet bedrooms far from the hustle and bustle below with a fabulous large skylight and landing area. It’s fully furnished with wooden floors and rugs. The bathroom is typical old style Dutch housing with a shower, sink and WC but no bathtub I’m afraid.
Whet you arrive you will be met by my neighbour’s a Dutch family who live in the apartment below. They will be on hand to meet you with keys, show you apartment features and help with locations, direction, hiring bikes etc. to settle you in.
There are provisions in the kitchen provided for your refreshment after your trip: fresh milk, biscuits, tea, coffee etc. and you are welcome to use all within the residence - home away from home. There’s bed linen, towels provided and the fully equipped kitchen allows you to self cater and spend sometime indoors.
It’s a seven minute walk from Central Station and the location couldn’t be more ‘city center' with everything Amsterdam has to offer, museums, art galleries markets, cinema, theatre, night life, China Town, restaurants and great bars…it’s all waiting for you to discover with just an enjoyable short walk away.
Please note the apartment is not a hotel room but a home. I am afraid I cannot cater for stag parties or people coming strictly for revelry.
There are no special house rules ! Just the usual no smoking policy.
I am a freelance photographer who specialises in NGO documentation on human and environmental issues. One of my treasured clients is Greenpeace where I was employed for many years as Head of Photography at the International office in London and Amsterdam. My work always takes my far afield and I am often away for long periods of time, yet I always love returning to the sanctuary of my home in Amsterdam.
When I am not working I enjoy catching up on culture - current affairs, reading, cinema, TV, spending quality time with my family and friends...
On my travels I have met many different people and cultures from around the world. This has taught me that everybody shares basic needs in life, love, friendship, family, a quality of life. It is this spirit I welcome new relations from whoever wishes to stay in my home.
